Jenson Button at the Canadian GP

In Racing, there will always be battles up and down the order. The most important scraps are the ones for the win. Imagine a squabble that ensues on the last lap for the win or a podium. The atmosphere is tense, there are no more fingernails left to chew, the stands are waiting with bated breath to see if 2nd place can pull it off. As the pass is made, there are roars from one section, groans from another section of the grandstand. That is how F1 final laps go down in history as dramatic. Here are the top 10 dramatic final laps in F1.

It was the closest that Arrow ever got to a win.
